Industry Reviews

The simple, cartoony, black-and-white illustrations help drive home these absolute "must-know" lessons for tourists and business travelers-especially anyone responsible for business negotiations" -Midwest Book Review
"An excellent job of illustrating many of the common issues people may encounter while in China. Bravo!" -Mark Rowswell AKA Dashan, performer/cultural ambassador, "the most famous foreigner in China today"
